This year, The Coffee Bluff Marine Rescue Squadron is celebrating its 60th anniversary as a nonprofit marine search and rescue operation serving the Coastal Empire and surrounding areas. Over the past six decades, the Coffee Bluff Marine Rescue Squadron has provided hundreds of manhours on various missions including the search and rescue of stranded boaters, support of local authorities in drowning victim searches, and water safety support at marine events. All activities of the Coffee Bluff Marine Rescue Squadron are executed by experienced volunteers at no charge to boaters.

 

Marine Rescue Squadrons of America was established in January 1959 by Tybee Island Police Chief David McCutchen, Perry Solomon and others on Tybee Island. The need for the MRS developed after it was realized that the Coast Guard, due to the large size of its vessels, could not render aid in all circumstances. Since that date, eleven squadrons have been organized across Georgia and South Carolina.
